The emotional gut punch of The Wrestler meets the high-octane action of Dragonball Z!

2023 Eisner Award winner in the “Best Publication for Teens" category

From the creative mind behind Wonder Woman: Dead Earth and Transformers, Daniel Warren Johnson weaves the heartbreaking, emotionally-charged, coming-of-age tale of one girl grappling with grief, imposter syndrome, and the grit it takes to survive amongst a thunderdome of high-stakes wrestlemania competition.

Lona Steelrose wants to be a pro-wrestler, but she's living under the shadow of her mother, the best to ever do it. Everything changes when a wrestling obsessed necromancer asks her to join the grandest pro-wrestling tournament of all time, which is also the most dangerous!

This action-packed, critically-acclaimed story is perhaps best described as THE WRESTLER meets DRAGONBALL Z and collects the complete DO A POWERBOMB! miniseries, issues #1-7.

Select praise for Do a Powerbomb!:

"Demonstrating an uncommon ability in his art to project outsized swagger and spectacle, wild aerial exploits, and spatters of gore delivered by rock-hard fists or folding chairs wrapped in barbed wire so that it all seems to explode off the page, Johnson pits his dynamic duo, styling themselves Sun and Steel, against massive opponents on the way to a climactic smackdown. With a fine disregard for physics, the artist mixes teams freely and has his wiry protagonist delivering as well as taking bone-crunching blows and kicks as she faces much bigger opponents. Shock and awe?even for jaded WWF fans." —Kirkus Reviews

“Grounds its vibrant world with beats of legacy, grief, and more, and then throws in a touch of the supernatural to deliver a one-of-a-kind story that deserves all the praise it will undoubtedly receive, and I couldn’t recommend it more.” —ComicBook.com

"An action-packed, hard-hitting comic with a surprising emotional range and an awesome cast of characters." —CBR

"A pro-wrestling comic full of heart, emotion, and absolute ass-kickery of the highest quality." —Monkeys Fighting Robot
